The sleeping area has a pillow top, queen sized bed and a nightstand with drawer and a iPod/iPhone dock clock.

The full-sized kitchen is outfitted with Ikea cabinetry and fully stocked with cooking utensils. It also has a double porcelain sink, microwave, gas stove, fridge, toaster, coffee maker and pantry.

The bathroom features a vintage cast-iron porcelain tub with shower and porcelain sink.

The gravel driveway/yard is fenced but not fully enclosed. Dogs are welcome with a nonrefundable $50 fee per dog but there is no secure enclosure so they must remain leashed.

very clean and new, well appointed, and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cosy little cottage right in Alpine in a quiet neighborhood. We stayed two nights, and felt right at home. Everything inside is clean and new, everything you need is there, and all for a great price.

Excellent experience, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation, great host, centrally located, perfect balance of size and simplicity, no hassle whatsoever, quintessential VRBO experience. Perfect for a single or a couple. Not a lot of great lodging options in the area, better experience than any of the local hotels IMO, very pleased and would definitely stay here again. Thanks!

A Four-Night, Five-Star Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Hummingbird Cottage for four nights and had and absolutely wonderful stay. The cottage was impeccably clean, beautifully decorated, and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, and the locally roasted coffee was a nice treat. We visit Alpine several times a year, and we plan to book the cottage again. Thank you, Jenny. Your B&B was just perfect!

Better than a regular hotel

If your looking for a place to stay in this area don't stay anywhere else. The place is perfect and Jenny is so hospitable. She accommodated our every need. When I come back to Alpine this is where I'm staying.

Everything you could possible want and need!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic little place ideal for one or two people. Jenny cares about the right things and it shows. Organic half-half in the fridge, free wifi, super comfy bed, lots of windows that you can actually open! Clean, clean clean everything and it's super quiet. I loved staying here, I will be back as it's an ideal spot--far enough away to feel like you're getting away but close enough to the highway so you can start exploring.

Home Sweet Home!

  • 5 of 5

At least that's what it felt like to me when I stayed here at Jenny's place. It's a standalone small house, that when you walk in, you'll see that it is a large efficiency apartment. One big room with bed, kitchen, TV, and two separate small rooms, one is the bathroom/shower, and the other the laundry room where the washer and dryer are.

Jenny has a clean, cozy, comfortable home for rental here, there's a nice TV, fridge, a stove and microwave, and she's got it fully stocked with every kind of kitchen tool that you'd want.

Window unit for the AC, which was needed for a hot mid-September stay, and which kept the room plenty cold and comfortable. No street noise, no noisy neighbors, just quiet.

The bed is comfortable and all of the linens and towels were clean and smelled good. Jenny has good taste in coffee and has some there for you to make.

I couldn't figure out how to turn on the tv and the directTV and I called her for help, and she came right over and she was so nice and friendly. I highly recommend this place.

Note that two people is the max for a comfortable stay, more than that and it'd be really cramped. The two-seater couch doesn't fold out to a bed.
